Most Volkswagens should be serviced every 10,000 to 20,00 miles (or 12 – 24 months).

However, your VW should have a service light or schedule, which will tell you when your next VW service in Northampton is due.  If you can’t find it and you’re not sure when it’s due, call us and we’ll find out for you.

After your first VW service at our Northampton garage, we’ll keep track an

What’s Included In A Service?


Lighting & Visibility – Your front and rear lights are rigorously checked for optimal performance, as is your glass, wipers, exterior mirrors and registration plates. 


Under Bonnet – A full under bonnet inspection ensures no leaks and that everything is in working order. If necessary, we’ll replace service items such as your air filter, oil filter, spark plugs or drive belts.


Tyre Inspection – All road wheels and tyres are inspected for any issues, and pressures adjusted prior to refitting. We’ll even check your spare wheel or inflation kit.


Steering, Drive & Suspension – All joints, gaiters and wheel bearings are extensively inspected, as well as your front and rear shock absorbers and road springs.


Braking – Both front and rear brake components are checked and measured, allowing us to accurately report on their service life.


Under Vehicle – After your under trays are removed, the engine oil is drained and transmission checked for leaks.


Vehicle Interior – Your interior is as important as your exterior. So, all seat belts, horn, hazard lighting and vehicle controls are inspected. We’ll also check for any warning messages, and ensure the driver displays are correct. This includes analysing your vehicle computers for intermittent or permanent faults.


Final ChecksWe’ll finish up with your brake fluid and antifreeze test, before filling your engine with new oil. Once we’ve completed our work we’ll switch off any service lights on your dashboard and update your service history (paper or electronic) to have your vehicle performing at its best.

    Used road main garage to diagnose an oil leak on my land rover Freelander. Everybody I spoke to was very informative and helpful. They took the time to explain the fault and give me options that were in my best interest rather than most garages trying to just get your money! They have alot of knowledge when it comes to Landrovers and are very honest. Will be using again in the future
